elected, i called the speaker elect and the leaders, the co-speakers, in this case, and the senate president, the budget writing people, out to the governor's house, and i walked through what i laid out, and i said, what do you think? where do you agree? where don't you agree? from day one, we were on the same page. we knew health care was not a partisan issue, neither is educating children or growing jobs and grows the economy. we agreed on that. i brought them into the office, and surprise, surprise, relationships actually developed. it was a trust relationship there, and they were able to demonstrate that, you know, solving the problems really depends on the ability of people to, you know, create a vessel where there's trust and common cause, and, you know, real proud of what we did out there. i don't think that's unique to oregon, but that requires a certain kind of leadership and commitment to move beyond partisanship to solving problems that face everyday americans.
